What to wear for a paragliding flight?
It is necessary to have trainers or closed shoes and to bring trousers and a windbreaker, even if you do not use them during the flight.
At an altitude of over 1000 metres, there can be a big difference in temperature and wind.
How long does the flight take?
The duration of the flight may vary depending on the weather conditions and the passenger's abilities.
It also depends on the type of flight you choose.
From what age can I fly a paraglider?
There is no age limit for flying. When you are a child from 4 or 5 years old, we can take a child if he wants to and if he is ready, without any problem.
Concerning the maximum age limit, if the person is mobile, can walk and scoot, then we can take him/her and choose the right conditions to take him/her flying.
Are you afraid of heights when paragliding?
Surprisingly, this is a concept we don't have because our feet don't touch the ground and we are sitting comfortably.
Don't be afraid to fly if you are afraid of heights, because you won't be afraid at all once you are in the air!

For what reasons can my flight be cancelled?
